Submission Guidelines


Submit 1-2 fiction/nonfiction prose pieces (maximum 10,000 words total) or 1-5 poems (maximum 100 lines total). Unless it changes the intent of the piece, all prose should be double-spaced, left-aligned and 12-point Times New Roman font. Poetry should be formatted according to the author’s intent. Besides seeking honest and high-quality work, we have no specific guidelines for style or subject matter.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but we do not accept previously published work. Please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.

All submissions should be sent in .doc or .docx file format to The deadline for consideration for our sixth issue is April 15th, 2018 at 11:59 PM.

We will confirm reception of submissions by email as soon as we receive them, and hope to notify all selected authors by the end May of their inclusion in the issue. At that point, we will return manuscripts digitally with any suggested edits for consideration from the authors before moving forward with publication.

If everything runs smoothly, we hope to have Issue 7 of Sobotka available in print by July.
